Program Description

 

In 2006, the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD), under the Secretary for Multidimensional Security (SMS) of the Organization of American States (OAS), designed a program to develop and strengthen member state’s institutions, policies, and strategies regarding treatment and rehabilitation for individuals with problems stemming from drug abuse and violence.

The Training and Certification Program for Drug and Violence Prevention, Treatment, and Rehabilitation (PROCCER) was introduced in Central America beginning in 2007, 19 countries of the Latin American Federation of Therapeutic Communities (FLACT) in 2008, Mexico in 2010, the Caribbean in 2011. PROCCER created a Training and Certification Model that may be implemented throughout the hemisphere in response to the need for trained prevention and treatment service providers working in violence and drug addiction. The PROCCER Model may be adapted to meet country-specific needs and capacity to better ensure the institutionalization and sustainability of the program benefits – a professionalized workforce providing optimized standards of care in drug treatment and prevention services.
